Chain Smashers Edgemont presented by LifeSport and the Calgary Disc Golf Club’s (CDGC) JUNIOR Program.
It’s about fun and growing the disc golf community.
All are welcome – from those new to the sport, to experienced youth.
New this year is that we are making it PDGA sanctioned, though a PDGA membership is not required. There is however a registration discount for Calgary Disc Golf Club members (includes Airdrie Disc Golf Club).

Determining PDGA Playing Age:
A player’s official PDGA Age is based on their year of birth, NOT their birthday. So whatever age they will be on their birthday during the calendar tour year is their PDGA age for that entire calendar tour year and determines their eligibility for age-based divisions.
If a 10 year old player will turn 11 at anytime during the calendar year, their PDGA age is 11 for that entire calendar year so they must play in a Junior ≤12 division (or higher).
So they could do MJ12, MJ15, MJ18.
They cannot do MJ06, MJ08, MJ10.
The ‘M’ means mixed, so any gender can sign up.
There are also the female divisions if one chooses those (e.g. FJ10).
The location is the Edgemont Disc Golf Course at John Laurie Park. We will use the existing 11 basket locations. Two rounds will be played.
Scoring will be super easy and with live results. A special PDGA link will be emailed out. Simply follow the link to keep score. More details later.
We will endeavor to pair up friends for Round 1 if possible. Please contact us or use the notes field on the registration form to list friends. Cards will likely range from 2-4 players.
Bring at least one disc! If you are a beginner, any conventional ‘frisbee’ style disc will do. Typically as people get better they specialize into disc golf discs. Don’t be scared to participate. See our video ‘A Junior Disc Golf Survival Guide’ on YouTube at channel YYC DGTV – https://youtu.be/ZMvX-PT-TLI
As per PDGA rules anyone younger than 13 years must be chaperoned by an adult (PDGA Competition Manual…1.13 Youth Safety, Sec B.).
Although a two round tournament, in line with PDGA policy, participants age 10 or under can choose to play one round (PDGA Competition Manual…1.13 Youth Safety, Sec E.). HOWEVER, let us know. On the live results we will leave them unassigned for the second round with a blank score. Once finalized, they will show as having completed a one round tournament.
Before or after the tee times head over to the sponsor tents to check out what they have and you never know, there may be a special activity (e.g. mini disc course competition, long throw competition, or long throw mini competition etc).

Player Etiquette & Safety
